Every sixth person in India needs mental-health help

Every sixth person in India needs mental-health help

The Australian Journal of Rural Health, in its October issue, reports that, on average, people with mental illness die 20 years earlier than the total population's average life expectancy.

This year's World Mental Health Day - observed yesterday on October 10 - made a decision to have "Young people and mental health in a changing world" as its theme. We need to develop within society a better understanding of the issues that impact the lives of young people in this age of globalisation, and create awareness about the risks of depression, self-harm and suicide.

They are likely to debate the findings of a new report from WHO, which states that mental health should be explicitly included in global policy as mental health problems kill more young people than any other cause worldwide.

The main reason behind the rise in this is a financial hardship, lack of proper education, physical illness, and shortage of basic resources as well as inability to provide basic things to the family are leading to the mental illness among the people in the country.

"It's important we keep raising awareness about mental health".

The theme of the Day is, "the Youth and Mental Health in a changing World".

A 'Swift' Impact: Tenn. voter registration skyrockets after Swift's Instagram endorsement
In a separate statement, Vote.org acknowledged there were several factors that could have contributed to the surge. But the spike since Swift's Instagram post is unprecedented, Sinel indicated. "She's a tremendous woman", he said.

Today is a day like every other day where there are people around us suffering in silence.

This is why today, on World Mental Health Day, I believe that it's the flawless time to promote mental health awareness in the workplace, and encourage colleagues to look out for each other. "Get help right away". In Zimbabwe, some community members are holding counseling sessions on public benches as a neutral space to have conversations about mental health struggles, and here in Canada, Bell Let's Talk Day continues to drive the conversation forward. However, the service felt many of these emergency retrievals could be avoided if more appropriate and comprehensive mental health services were available in remote and rural areas. It can be imposed following an assessment by a mental health professional and a doctor.

According to the 2011-2012 National Survey of Children's Health, results showed that 1 out of 7 American children ages 2 to 8 years old had a diagnosed mental, behavioral, or developmental disorder.

According to psychologists, among women those in the age group of 20 to 45 are more prone to mental health issues, almost 75 to 80 percent, followed by older women, who account for the rest.

He also thinks it is important for young adults to open up about their mental health because it will lead them to live a fuller life. And to take a moment and do your part and help change the way we talk about this issue.

However Dr Karthik K.N., a consultant psychiatrist at Sagar Hospitals, pointed out that the assumption that mental health disorders are more common in women is not entirely true.
